‘Prince Minerals — developing a reliable solution for abrasive materials’ - .PDF file.

Prince Minerals, a processor of speciality industrial minerals, mills silica sands to produce powders. Milled silica is transported by bucket elevator from the ball mill up through the building so that  it can fall under gravity through a desk sieve, and then onto an air classifier. However, Prince Minerals had encountered a number of reliability-related issues with its system. In a recent upgrading project the brief to Guttridge and SGH Equipment, the project engineers responsible for installation, was to engineer a solution that would significantly enhance reliability. In response, Guttridge designed and manufactured a system with a number of special features calculated to deliver the low-maintenance, high-reliability solution required.
